Had this out of the swing cap bottle. No problem finishing this bottle, so no need to reseal.
A: A nice dark mahogany color, with a rather thin head. Poured like it was thicker than it turned out to be.
S: Molasses. Maybe a little beer here and there, but mostly molasses. That's nothing to complain about, in my book.
T: Molasses. There's a vague fruitiness, but anything that you notice beyond the molasses is going to be an individual perception thing. About the right amount of sweetness: present, but, well, certainly not like drinking molasses. All in all, an enjoyable set of flavors.
M: A bit thin. I tend to like a thicker beer, so you might see it differently.
D: Excellent. I could drink at least a couple of these. Easy going down, cold and not-so-cold.
This was my first experience with a dark beer which I really liked, but was not a meal in a bottle.

Poured from the bottle into a pokal glass.
A bit murky looking color and appearance, but a real nice mahogany and reddish colored body, with some nice rising faint bubbles. Head is easily three fingers tall, foamy, full of swiss cheese retention and coffee cocoa brown in color. A little bit of soapy lacing. Neat looker.
Real nice clean aroma. Light powdered cocoa, hints of light cream and drip poured diner coffee. Some fresh ripping grain to match. This is very solid.
Palate comes with a lighter body than I expected, but more than delivers on the taste. Light amounts of milk chocolate and wafer like crispy malts. Small hints of milk and coffee finish, with a hints of clove like aroma. Slightly fruity interestingly, with a dry aftertaste and grain aromas that really last.
Overall a real clean and refreshing Schwarzbier, good one to know about, but probably enjoy Kostritzer a bit more.
